Very good team but poor corporate decisions
I had the opportunity to work in a great team that was part of a very well managed division.
Unfortunately the company made poor decision early on and wasted lots of resources and money.

A good team atmosphere where being proactively helpful pays off
Customer service and ticketing where there is no script and you are expected to take responsibility for your own decisions and workload. The person on the other end of the line is treating you like a phone-a-friend resource to get to know rather than someone answering questions right now who you won't ever encounter again.

Good place to work for.
So many reorganization occurred after i left the company. Not sure how it is now since they are focusing on software. However it was really fun to work for Blackberry.

Ok place to work
Everything is just OK. No much to add, it depends on the team you end up with. There is certain progress and everybody is helpful. Opportunities of growing are limited and depends of many factors.
Pros
Free snaks
Cons
Watch out with their constant layoffs.

I was very proud of the culture within the technical teams.
Excellent technical team. However, local management tended to take short cuts, then blame the inevitable problems on the team that touched the software last, even after being informed of the known issues. Blackberry Corporate were never informed by local management of these practices.

Productive and fun workplace
If you are a software engineer, you will enjoy working at this place. Salary expectations needs to be tempered but align to normal pay in Canada in general

Great place to work
I felt like a star while I worked for BlackBerry but all good things must end. There is not much you can do to combat a shift in direction and corporate identity. My department no longer exists but it was great while it lasted. It was a great company to work for in all the ways you would expect.
Pros
Autonomy, positive and inclusive corporate culture, flexibility, laid-back atmosphere
Cons
Job security, future growth

Don't join up with BlackBerry unless you have an exit strategy
Worked in the Halifax office from 2007 through to 2013.

Layoffs were a regular occurrence. Every day to still be employed was like winning a raffle.


They pay you great but it's the "every day you work is a gift" culture that had since formed that was disturbing.


The hardest part of the job was the variances of customers you get and attitudes therein. That may be different now that BlackBerry is pretty much using Android for their O/S now.

It had lots of good parts, and some big obvious bad ones
I worked there through the dark days of layoffs on a regular basis and the transition over to using the Android operating system. It was tough! But they treated us pretty well. Not much to complain about, really.

I completed two terms there and it was a very good learning experience. My co-workers were awesome, management wants to give you every opportunity to learn and excel. It is a past paced environment with room to grow!

Great workplace
Great workplace to start out your career. There are lots of opportunities for people to take part in new projects and to learn new things. You are never refined to your basic job description.
